Yes did all that. I am following MaG's W/t. The part that is not working is when I go back to Niko's office.
"look close at monitor. Insert rocket flash in the USB drive" ....
Where is the USB drive? I inserted the "books" (or whatever they were called) in the "disk drive" but that is entirely different to an USB drive! The rocket flash drive doesn't seem to fit. Nancy says so. LOL
Yes, I have the Faraday box in the inventory. I even went back and redid this to make sure I had spoken to everyone.
I am sorry to say this but MaG's W/t was very wrong in this instance. I needed to Google and found that the actual "Nicko's Study" area in MaG's W/t was NOT Niko's Office but his "secret" area in the Laboratory!
It might be an idea to change that in MaG's W/thru for us dummies who go by your W/t word-by-word!
The term Niko's study is the one used by the game itself to describe the place under the lab; check the To Do list. If you followed the walkthrough as you stated "word for word" - then you will note that it is also the term used when you opened that door. Several steps before this part. It is a study and not a lab.
